Our Heritage

 

Oldest Continuous Business in Asotin County 
 
Merchant Funeral Home was founded in 1898 by Henry R. Merchant. Henry was a furniture maker and a funeral director, as well as being the local coroner. The first funeral home was located in Asotin, Washington, 5 miles up the river from Clarkston. The original funeral home building was donated to the Asotin County Historical Society, and is currently in use as a museum of local history. Many of the orignal pieces of equipment used in the funeral home are on display in the museum. 
 
Henry's son, W.C. "Tommy" Merchant, followed in his father's footsteps, and took over management of the funeral home in the 1930's. 
 
In 1955, Tommy Merchant hired Bob Larrabee, a young funeral director, who, together with his wife, Renee', purchased the funeral home in the 1970's from Tommy's widow, Bonnie Merchant. 
 
In 2001 their daughter Lisa, and her husband, Tom Sutherland, entered into a purchase agreement with Bob & Renee' Larrabee to purchase their 3 funeral homes and cemetery.
